    I did my usual Wednesday night ride tonight, even managed to start a bit earlier than usual. I left the really bright headlight home -- I blame my job, too many meetings this morning distracted me...

    I usually have a second person to help when I'm loading a second bike. Once I had to get a very large road bike into the car on top of my bike with no one to help. It was after a club ride in which...

    My car is a hatchback but it's a Pruis, so the rear window is pretty angled. As a result I don't like to have a bike rack on the back -- I just don't like the way it sits. I do find that I can get...

    Just an update, my 20-mile ride on Wednesday showed that I was not imagining things -- the new wheels transfer lots of road vibration. I could feel it in both the front and back wheels, so the lower...

    Yes, last year they tried to upsell me for $50. I declined. Then they sent me a letter saying there was a problem and I had to go back for more. The follow-up used the 3D imaging and cost me $100 out...

    Very true. Also I find that warm wrists and ankles are necessary for comfortable hands and feet.

    I tend to have very cold hands and feet when I'm not riding my bike, and I need very warm mittens...

    I wear thin wool glove liners under Bontrager windshell gloves, which are unlined. This works for me down to 40 degrees, and below that I don't ride. It's a bit inconvenient dealing with two layers...

    I've never ridden a recumbent, but I have several friends who like them. What I find interesting is the variation in designs -- some are actually not much lower than a typical road bike.

    I rode almost 20 miles tonight after work. Probably my last night ride of the year in a sleeveless jersey, definitely my last one without the reflective vest. It was uneventful and pleasant.

    The old wheels have 20 spokes in front, 24 in back. So it looks like the lower spoke count in front is making a difference, in addition to possible differences in tension (maybe fewer spokes requires...

    Better to be uneven on the outside than so very ugly on the inside.

    I lowered the psi on both tires in order to get through my ride on Saturday without throwing my bike down on the side of the road in anger. That stopped the bouncing feeling but there was still more...

    I actually only have a vague understanding of what tubeless tires are, and I have no concept of why someone would use them. The impression I have is that they are time-consuming to deal with.

    In general, more expensive helmets have bigger vents/better air flow and are lighter. Based on the Aspire's price, it's not the best for very hot weather.

    But before talking about helmets --...

    Wheels and road vibrations

    I've been riding with Bontrager Race wheels on my Madone. They were the stock wheels that came with the bike in 2010, and they were fine. I could tell that they were a bit faster than the (stock)...

    I'm a bit worried that it's 5 pm and I haven't heard from the shop yet. Though I'm still okay for Saturday's big ride if it's ready tomorrow.
